CHD Awareness Week

Good evening! As you can see, we found room for yet another contraption for Braden to play with. Even though he'd rather chew on his toes these days, the Jumparoo will be fun when he figures out how to "rock" the house in it :-) We just started putting him in his high chair, and it didn't take long for him to figure out what comes next..."bring on the food!!"
This Wednesday is a very special day for our family. Not only is it Valentine's Day, but it's Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day. In honor of Braden, Rich and I will be sporting t-shirts (compliments of designer and printer, Cousin Carla and Uncle Steve) that say, "My heart beats for Braden." If you can, wear red to help us support all of the kiddos who were born with a unique heart like Braden. This Wednesday we also hope to post the website of our non-profit charity, Heart of Gold, Inc. Stay tuned on Wednesday for the big announcement! One more Wednesday announcement: Braden goes to see his pediatrician. He will get his 6 month well check along with his 4 month vaccinations. We are anxious to see how Braden "sizes" up to other kiddos his age with weight, height, milestones, etc.
Next Monday we're off to CHW for an appointment with Dr. Cava. Braden will have an echo done to see how his heart is functioning post-Glen.
Tomorrow our little buddy Carter will go in for another operation. We're praying that this will "fix" the arrhythmia he's been having now for almost a year. Please keep this sweet little boy in your prayers as well as his mom and dad.
Thanks and have a great week!
Love, Steph, Rich, and Braden
